It all depends on what class you're planning to shoot but here are some "typical" guidlines:I’m new to 3-D archery. I’ve shot a couple tournaments. I’m looking to upgrade to a 3-D set up from my hunting bow. Any input on bows, sights, scopes, rests etc. would be greatly appreciated
I did want to add one thing not about equipment but shoots.
We travel and shoot in many states, for sanctions shoots and fun shoots. Honestly i really prefer fun shoots.
no two clubs are the same
some are super laid back and just make the day a blast, sell mulligans and stuff, you keep your own score in your group and have a good time with OTHERs laid back at all
some "fun" shoot, the guys can be total a-holes. they want to make their little club fun shoot run like a ASA pro shoot. "double score cards," "station change at a horn", "super up tight", "45 minute repair rules", "No farting on the course because their bottoms were to tight they cant pass gas".
My favorite shoot any where was in Lubbock Texas, they set an amazing course, never the same, very challenging, shooting on flat plains, shooting down step vallieys. target in bright sun then in deep shadows, just a rock and roll times. but most of all every person i have met will do anything to help
drinks and candy are like a buck, sandwich 2-3 bucks they are there for fun not to rape every dime you have.
Mississipi, Ok , NM, Kansas has a few nice shoots. very fun
Most people are into Paris, honestly , it is ok but dont love it. flat ground shooting in trees, no major angles and average shots.
A really fun shoot i just tried was in Seminole Tx , a very small club but it was down home, good time, if your in that area go its really with the 10 bucks
I find most the really fun clubs let ya take a break when ya want , all they have is a deadline to turn in score cards.
in saying this
try a few,, some are really fun and will fit what your looking for.
